Stop 8: Mecca Bah, Fortitude Valley
I had a lunch date with two friends from the same hometown. Well, both of them are sisters and they are my mom's best friend daughters. =) It was decided early that we will be having Turkish food and Mecca Bah was one of the choices. Finding a parking spot in The Emporium on Saturday and during lunch time was a hassle. Finally, we found a spot somewhere two streets away!
|Mecca Bah dips (Hummus, Labna and Baba Gannouj) and bread (3 pc) - $15|
|Spicy Morrocan Tagine - Chicken with tomatoes, almond, sesame & honey $23|
|Turkish pizza - Spit roasted lamb, rocket, yoghurt & sumac - $22|
Overall, it was a good place to catch up with friends. The food was all right but maybe a little expensive for me. Just take note when you are drinking your water! The three of us realized that there was some dust or specks in our drinks (plain water). Probably because since it's outdoor and glasses were left uncovered.
Stop 9: Poppy Cakes, Fortitude Valley
Looking around for desserts and I suggested Poppy Cakes!
|Poppy Cakes is just around the corner in Emporium|
|Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake - $4|
|Red Velvet - $4|
|Simone's Vanilla Passion - $4|
I liked the three cupcakes we ordered but my favourite is the Chocolate Peanut Butter! The icing reminded me a little of the Reese's Peanut Butter cups. =)
